LGB finally gave me a good deal

11 posts in this topic

been playing/buying NXT Tours for a couple of years, and i buy through LGB or golfballnutz.  LGB has annoyingly high shipping costs and quality is usually a little lower than their representation i feel.

decided to switch to the Srixon XV this year and bought a 50-bucket on ebay for $60 from LGB (free shipping for once).  i got them yesterday and not only are all of them Srixon XV's (problems in the past with getting some randoms in the lot), but zero of them had a corporate logo.  they pretty much all look brand new, and were only 4A quality.  i was pretty surprised.

but...i'm wondering if Srixon just rarely gets corporate logos.  the NXT's usually were about 90% with corp logos.

That's a big part of it... Titleist makes a lot of balls with corporate logos, Srixon not so much so it isn't a surprise to see that you didn't end up with any. I've only ordered from GBN but find them to be very good at representing their product. They also have a "no logo" option for a dollar or two more per dozen if that's what you want.

that makes sense about Srixon.  GBN sold me 100 NXT Tours for $54 shipped, so i am a big fan of them.  the NXT's are now my backup ball if i'm having one of those days where i seem to lose a lot.

Play them. If you lose 3 balls a round, that's about 15 rounds. If you play once a week they are gone in 3 months. Plus why buy them brand new when 18 cost the same as 50 used? Doesn't matter how long they last, it's a better deal.

I have had a great experience with lostgolfballs and when you pay for the no logo option i feel your getting better quality balls because the logo'd balls usually are not that great condition.

I laughed when I saw this...what do we all do with golf balls?  I don't mean to be rude or anything, just found it funny.

If you play a lot of golf I don't see why you wouldn't buy recycled/refinished golf balls.  The sites mentioned in this thread are really good and you can usually save A LOT off retail price when buying used.  And for me at least, it doesn't hurt as much to lose a ProV1 when I know it only cost a buck or two.

I literally just got done buying balls from there....I have bought balls from there a few times and I was just thinking to myself that the shipping prices were crazy!  The cheapest shipping option is for a USPS flat rate box which is almost $13!

I think that they do a decent job of representing the quality of the balls for the most part.  I was a little pissed when I bought several dozen Bridgestone E6 white golf balls and as I was using them, I found a few E5 and E7's mixed in.

As for the corporate logos........almost every ball has one, especially the Titleists!  I was using an NXT Tour S when I made my first/only eagle.  My friends still give me hell about it because the ball that I was using had a Gay/Lesbian Company Logo on the golf ball.  That happened a few months back and they still get on me about that!

What's a "Gay/Lesbian" company? Do they make homosexuals?

I believe it was actually a logo for an event.  It had LGBT with the name of the event and a rainbow as part of the logo.  I do not know what they make.  I just know that I made an eagle with the ball.

That makes considerably more sense. Did the eagle putt go in the back door? LOL.

    • Mayb Spieth should spend more time over his ball, talked to his caddy more, slow things down a bit...........       (god help us no!)
    • I found  that I was making better contact  when I started my downswing with my arms.   BUT, on further review, and after watching a video of myself, I found the reason.   And the reason was, I  was ending my backswing by raising my arms.   I was becoming disconnected at the top of the back swing.   Thus, by starting my down swing with my arms, I was just getting re-connected and putting myself back into the position I should have been in at the top of my down swing.  Now, I am going to work on not raising my arms at the top of the back swing.   Then, I will be able to follow the advice in the post that started this thread.  Better yet, it's way past time for me to get some lessons from my local pro. 
    • To OP, your primary focus of all should be to learn to swing on plane first. Speed will come. It will come in boatloads. Consider the analogy of a car speeding in a NASCAR track. You can throttle the car when in the straight section of the track and get max speed but you have to slow down in the turn section, no matter how powerful the engine. Swinging 'on plane' with a proper sequence is like driving the car the straight section - you can maximize leverage and inertia for speed. Leveraging a club for speed until then is like trying to speed up at the turn - you will just go off track or will have to slow down to keep control. Of course swinging on plane is easier said then done. It is as closest to the 'holy grail' of golf you can get. Everybody, even experience players, are always chasing it. But swing even somewhat on plane will do wonders. Impact will dramatically improve too. You are new to the game. It is an exciting time with all kinds of new discoveries of what you can do with a golf club. THIS is the best time to get a camera and work with a good professional - do it NOW!!   
    • I played round 1 of 2 for the final local tournament of the year yesterday.  I struggled with my driver the entire day and managed to find only 1 of 14 fairways.  It was frustrating, to say the least.  

      On the plus side, I posted a 42 - 45 = 87 and I'm only 4 strokes back heading to the final round this morning.  

      I figure, if I can jump out to a quick start early... I have a chance.  I know I need to post something really low... like an 82 or something, to have a realistic opportunity to catch the leader... but I know I can do it on the course we're playing, so... I have my fingers crossed.  

      I'm about to head out in 45 minutes or so to get some practice time in prior to the round.  I'll update tomorrow.

    • @spider  Excellent review of the track!  It should give folks a pretty fair idea of the course and what it has to offer. In terms of playability, it holds up to any major championship courses. You are rewarded for accuracy, challenging at times, suited for golfers of all skill levels. Very affordable. Although we did not see any, at times there are lots of wild life on the course and some imported such as American Bison! There used to be several herds of sheep. The location is kind of out there, quiet, and off the beaten track, yet easily accessible. And "Oh Yeah", stellar 5W! (I carry one as well, Ben Hogan Speed Slot (Laminate) which I used frequently.  I am looking forward to the next event.@Shindig says he may try to put something together for the winter.
